Polypack Inc: Label-orientation machinery

Using fiber-optic sensors to determine cans’ orientation, the label orienter for Polypack’s (Pinellas Park, FL) shrink-wrapping machinery turns cans so labels face outward before wrapping.

Stepper-driven grippers and metal rollers turn the cans until a preprogrammed spot on the label faces in the correct direction.
